(Y)MS-15 Gann was developed and piloted by Ma Kube,
the right-hand man of Kishiria Zabi. The 6-hr movies
cut away most of the Ma Kube's part after his defeat
at Odessa & return to space. In the TV series, he
developed Gann in order to compete w/ Gelgoog as the
next Zeon all-purpose MS to replace Zaku II, and Ma
Kube devised a plan to capture/defeat Gundam by luring
it to the Texas Colony & duel it out. Although Ma
Kube's skill is no match to Amuro's newly-found NT
ability, Gann proved to be a formidable MS,
particularly in close-quarter combat situation. It's
circular shield inc. powerful hide bombs & rockets,
but Gann lacks of beam rifles/other firearms limited
the MS to close-combat role, & subsequently Gann lost
out to Gelgoog in bids to be the next Zeon MS.
